Push a Button and Watch It Scrap

My ScrapIt Actions and Power Scrap It Collab with Katie were featured on The Daily Digi on Saturday. Check out the post for a fabulous interview with Katie, and a fun video of Steph scrapping a layout with one of the ScrapIt actions!

 

In honor of this special feature, all the original ScrapIt Actions are on sale through the end of August!

Script: Power Scrap It Collab

Be sure to stop by ScrapbookLady Pages to read what Katie had to say about this set we collabed on, and to see some wonderful sample pages she created using these scripts and actions. (Hint, hint, she might just have a coupon for you!)

I recently had a revelation. When I’m working on a major album, I change the way I scrap. I don’t work on one page at a time. I work on like tasks in smaller chunks of time. I’m more productive when I group like tasks together over a series of pages. This revelation, though new to me, was not new at all, as I came to find out!In fact, Katie the Scrapbook Lady (from ScrapbookladyPages & The Daily Digi) pioneered an entire method based on this idea called “Power Scrapping.” The concept is simple, but, well, powerful! Instead of thinking in terms of one page at a time, start thinking in terms of scrapping tasks like sorting photos, matching them to templates and kits, pulling in papers and elements, etc.Katie and I have teamed up to take Power Scrapping to the next level with this unique set of actions and templates. You can quickly start new layouts, import templates, rotate, flip or flop them, add photos, batch add elements, papers and more with or without shadows! This set of actions does all the busy work for you, leaving you more time for the part you love… the creative part!

This set includes actions and scripts, along with the optional templates. You’ll get a video tutorial on using the actions and a PDF on how to install them correctly. Pay careful attention on where to install your scripts and actions. It’s not hard… just copy and paste to the right location for your version of Photoshop or Elements and your Operations System (XP, Vista/W7, Mac).

YOU GET:
